About membership

Join us!

By joining the Climate Action Network you will link into Australia’s biggest network of organisations working to confront the climate crisis. You’ll be supported to share information about your campaigns and activities and to link with others working on the issues you are passionate about.

Application for membership to the network is open to CANA board-approved, non-profit organisations or educational institutions of any size and legal form, situated in Australia. Membership benefits for a network organisation do not extend to subsidiary groups of that member. Membership contributions are progressive based on the size of your organisation, the capacity to contribute and the level of involvement you want to have with the network.

We have two types of membership - Committed to Leadership or Regular -  depending on how you’d like to be involved. The benefits of each type of membership are outlined below. Affiliation is for those organisations or groups which are unincorporated. The single difference between a Regular Member and an Affiliate is the right to vote in CANA board elections and participate in internal decision-making at the annual AGM.
